Sahara is finished at last. It was really an easy knit, it shouldn't have taken more than a month if I had time to focus. The pattern was well written, very detailed and clear. The sweater is knit from top down, beginning at the back of the neck. Stitches are picked up and knit for the neckline and sleeves. The only seam to sew is at the neckline. Not a whole lot of finishing work. I love it!

Sahara終於織好了. 這件織法其實很簡單, 如果有時間好好地織的話, 應該不需要像我用到一個多月的時間. 這個pattern寫的超詳細的(密密麻麻地寫了四張紙), 非常清楚. 這件是從領子後面由上往下開始織, 領口和袖子用挑針來打. 唯一需要縫合的地方只有領口一小段, 接縫的工不多. 哈! 這種我最喜歡啦!


The only things that were a bit troublesome were the "k3tog tbl" and "p3tog tbl" in the necklines and hems. With the slippery Addi's and smooth silk yarn, I could not do the "p3tog tbl" at all. I tried for several minutes and just couldn't pull the wrapped yarn through. So I went with these short-cuts:

k3tog tbl - slip 2 sts as if to purl, knit next st through the back loop, pass the 2 sts over the knit st

p3tog tbl - purl 1 st, slip next 2 sts as if to knit, move all three sts back to left needle, pass the 2nd st over the purled st and off the needle, pass the leftmost st over and off in the same manner, move the resulting st back to right needle

唯一比較討厭的是模樣編裡的"k3tog tbl"和"p3tog tbl". 我用的Addi Turbo金屬輪針加上滑滑的絲線, 碰到這兩個針法就沒轍了. 我試了好幾次, 就是沒有辦法把線用針頭勾出來. 所以就決定用這些撇步:

k3tog tbl - 用上針的方式把兩針目滑到右針, 用下針的方式打下一針目後面那條線, 再把右針上兩針目套過去

p3tog tbl - 打一上針, 用下針的方式把兩針目滑到右針, 把這三針目移回左針, 把第二針目套過打上針的那一針目(此時兩針併成一針), 再把最左針目依同法套過(此時三針併成一針), 然後把剩下的那一針目移回右針就完成了


Other notes are:

Waist Shaping & Hip Increases - knowing that I don't have a wasp-like waist, I did the shaping decreases a total of 4 times (every 10th row) instead of 5 times. And thus the hip increases were also done 4 times

The sleeves are 17.5" from underarm instead of 16" before the hem. I actually had finished the sweater this past Sunday with the 16" sleeves, tried it on, the sleeves were way too short, and had to rip out the hem and added another 1.5".

其他更改的地方:

自認腰是蠻粗的, 所以pattern上腰身要減5次針, 我只減4次.

袖長(從腋下量)是17.5寸起開始織花樣邊, pattern上是16寸. 其實這件上禮拜天就織好了, 試穿後才發現袖子太短, 只好拆邊再加個一寸半 (奇怪, 我手有這麼長嗎?)


Sahara is very comfortable, and I like the fit (it is a bit too snug - I must not gain weight...) In hindsight, I wish I didn't pick such a fancy yarn (although I jumped at the opportunity to work with TT yarns...) With silk and all those beads, I wonder how often I will get to wear this? Now that's motivation to make a short-sleeve, more casual version of it. Maybe a cotton-silk or rayon-blend yarn for the summer?

這件穿起來很舒服, 很合身 (嗯... 有點太合身了, 穿這件時不能吃大餐... ) 可是當初好像不該選這絲線. 線是很美啦, 織出來效果也很好, 只是這是純絲的, 再加上一堆珠珠, 對我這整天在家帶小孩的好像沒什麼穿的機會? 有點想再織一件短袖的, 用棉絲混紡或rayon的線, 不加珠珠, 這樣實穿性應該比較高.

This yarn looks solid gray but actually, it isn't. Seems to mix some light gray in it that makes this yarn more vivid.The color, the beaded hem,and your experienced hands make this garment a great work!!

美極了!好羨慕ㄛ!因為懷孕的關係一點都不想動,再加上織好後也穿不下,鬱卒死了.

我現在還停留在第一隻袖子,嗚嗚嗚....得加緊努力完成它!

看妳什麼時候來,再幫我model啦!
